Riassunto: A distinguished man of letters culls wisdom from his encounters with illness and addiction.
Dall'editore: Stricken with polio as a kid. Floored by sedation-addiction (booze and pills) and depression in middle age. Blind-sided by cancer in his most recent years. Were you looking for a spokesperson for the JustiÞed Self-pity Foundation you would have to look no further than Wilfrid Sheed. But for this eminent novelist and essayist it has been the “primal insight” of his bouts with a brace of illnesses, each of which have caused him “to lose something I would have sworn I couldn’t live without,” that just being alive, “even on a no-frills basis, is astoundingly good.” And in the giddy rush of that realization there’s just no room for feeling sorry for oneself. Written in an inimitably rough-housing prose, Sheed’s uplifting memoir dramatically details the “bad night” that illness is, then puts its whole soul into celebrating waking from the night to fall “head over heels in love with daylight.”
